Thanks to everyone for your visits and leaving a comment.George, Bananaz,The whole process of applying henna designs on both hands and feet takes about four hours.Marites,The art of henna has been a long standing tradition here. They're usually applied to bride's hands and feet before wedding ceremonies. As far as i could tell, the power of henna is known to bring good luck and fortune, protection, and spiritual wealth.
That is so beautiful and intricate! I can only imagine how pretty the rest of her must have looked.
very artistic :) my entry is HERE
This is an impressive artwork. I watched something like this being done on TV. The artists didn't need any tracing materials to do this, they apply the henna directly to hands and arms, and it was perfect.What an interesting artistry.
